    I have Adobe Photoshop Album which I think is their most basic photo program, but it doesn't handle some formats.

    I came across a really nifty Freeware program called IRFANVIEW. I've only played around with it for thirty minutes and so far it looks good. It certainly reads more odd-ball formats than anything I've come across.

    Irfanview is on a par with PhotoShop with regard to capability. My past experience
    has been good however it does have its quirks and as long as you are aware of
    them, it's a great tool. If you like it, don't forget to contribute to the authors for
    all of their hard work.

    I'm just on a 14 day trial...still uncertain about the service.
    The MOA gets the $10 credit. It's not applied to your membership dues, but goes toward the account we keep to manage image assetts for this web site.

    I hope that helps.

    FWIW, the owner of Smugmug rides a K12RS. He's one of us.

    If you have a Mac, try Bibble. It's free in the Light version and very, very powerful.

    Who might that be? Maybe do a story on him/her and how their little image empire got started.

    As is everything else for a Mac...but I've never owned one for the usual reasons.

    You'd figure using a PC, I'd at least run Linux and have something crashproof.

    It's actually Baldy, the guy that owns Dgrin and Advrider. Also know as Chris MacAskill.

    He's a genuinely good guy. You know you're dealing with One Of Us when the categories for albums in smugmug include motorcycles.

    Like sausage boy said, Chris Macaskill is the man, along with his wife, son, and his wife, IIRC. They've been featured in a number of stories both in the web and print press. He used to own a GS, too.

    But he has a dark side.

    He owns a scooter.

    Photo Posting Experiment

    This is my first attempt to link photos from Smugmug to the forum. If this works, I try adding more than one pic.

    Well the last attempt didn't work, so let's try this.

    Now I shall try to put multiple images into the post, starting with a shot of Motel Blanchet.


    Now for the 2nd image between text using a photo of the Com'Inn in Moncton NB.


    Is it possible to put in 3 images?


    I think that I have gotten the hang of posting photos. Thanks to all in the previous posts whose information has helped me with this. Paul

    Now try them a wee bit smaller.
    The big size is nice, but might be a bit much for users with smaller monitors.
